Employment and human resource utilization

Mizuno places importance on the three Fs, namely Fair play, Friendship and Fighting spirit, in an effort to create an environment and climate where each employee has a fair attitude and high motivation, recognizes the differences of others, respects diversity and shares joy with colleagues. By encouraging challenges for innovation, Mizuno aims to achieve a corporate culture in which its people remain energetic and have a purpose in life.

Basic policy

On the assumption that the labor-related laws of different countries are observed, Mizuno includes “considerations for working conditions and the environment” in Article 9 of the Mizuno Ethical Standard in an effort to create an environment where people can work safely and energetically. Article 10 of the Mizuno Ethical Standard, “Respecting human rights,” prohibits all acts that may be considered to be discriminatory treatment and/or harassment. Mizuno also guarantees employees’ rights to join a labor organization and group negotiations, and secures equal opportunities in employment.
In accordance with the Human Resources Development Policy, Mizuno supports the personality improvement and skill development of every employee. Education and training activities for the development of human resources are based on employees’ efforts regarding self-development and are supplemented by on-the-job training (OJT) and off-the-job training (OFF-JT). The officer in charge of human resources and general affairs supervises many different initiatives relating to employees. Labor-management groups such as the Health and Safety Committee, Labor and Wage Study Group, CSR Committee and Human Resources & General Affairs Department hold discussions, and the Board of Directors makes final decisions.
